3) Briefly describe the last person you saw today.

My husband. He came back home to shower after the gym. YAY him!

4) Which store did you most recently shop in?

9) What’s the latest app that you downloaded on your phone?

hmmm….don’t think I have downloaded any for a while.

10) What’s the last kind thing you did for someone?

Saturday evening I took out 3 teen girls to practice some golf and get ready to go out for golf team. I enjoyed it quite a bit and did lots of laughing with them!

Life’s about change, nothing ever stays the same

Wednesday, August 10, 2011 was the first day of school for my girls.
Sarah Jane is now a Freshman in High School. (left)
Emily is a Junior in High School. (right)
First day of school 2011
This is the first year Emily was able to drive them on the first day of school. At first I was heartbroken that I was going to miss the yearly milestone of driving them to school and taking pictures as the walked into the school and in their new classrooms. Then as the day drew closer I realized this was exactly what we want for our daughters. To grow, progress and change. As a result, we must grow, progress and change with them. It became a new scrapbook layout in my head. And it is nice to have peace with this new normal.
Having the children grow up is not always easy on the Momma, but, this is how it is supposed to be. Life changes, we must change with it.
First day of school 2011 driving
And just for fun, First day of school 2001.
Ten years ago.  I have this exact picture for every first day of elementary.

Again Sarah Jane on left, first day of K-4.
Emily on right, first day of 1st grade.

Be sure to go visit Kelly's Korner to see more back to school fun ideas on Show us your life Friday.

Also linking this week to JDaniel4's mom!

So this is a photo with a lot of imperfections....be kind world!!

  • do I feel that things need to be perfect to write a blog post.
  • is it I care about who is reading, but when I look back through my blog I love my writing
  • do I only write when I am in a positive place
  • do people have to be ______, ___________, and  __________. fake, mean, and hurtful.
  • must life be so ever changing. It wouldn't be all bad to have some monotony.

What are the chances this is the beginning of a comeback??? We will see...tomorrow!!

So that is a photo with a lot of imperfections....be kind world!!
